My work uniform all winter has consisted of the following:
Thermal top and t-shirt
Carhart work pants – An upgrade from the jeans I started with thanks to a hot tip from Steve.
Hoodie – The one Em gave me last year. Unfortunately, I’m pretty sure I’ll need a new hoodie at the end of this project.
Headwear – When it’s warm out, I prefer bandana head wraps (it’s what I wore for most of my time working in kitchens). When it’s cold, I go with the wool skullcap.
Shoes – when there’s snow, it’s heavy boots. I don’t particularly like them. They’re cumbersome and hurt my feet. When there’s not snow, I wear my converse walking shoes. I only own like 3 pairs of shoes. Like the hoodie, I’ll need new shoes at the end of this thing.
In addition to my uniform, I carry with me a cell phone, wallet, keys, wedding ring, tablet computer, and portable hotspot. All this stuff gets deposited on the high, out of the way shelf when I get to work each morning. The tablet is what I’ve taken all of the pictures on that appear in this blog. The hotspot is so I can talk to the internet occasionally using the tablet. This has come in handy when I’ve needed to look up specs or a process for whatever job I’m in the middle of each day. I don’t use it often, but when I do, I’m happy to have it.
